This is a 4 month old thread you replied to, but since you did, Panasonic says:

Splash / Dust Proof : ... with a rubber ring on the lens mount, the new lens is designed to stand against moisture and dust making it ideal for outdoor photography enthusiasts , and Dust and Splash Proof construction lets you shoot in harsh conditions without worry

About the OM-D, Oly says: Dust-proof & Splash-proof Construction

About the 12-50: Dust and Splash Proof construction lets you shoot in harsh conditions without worry

They all sound pretty darn similar to me.

I've stopped thinking in terms of "equivalent" focal lengths on m43. 25mm is what it is, and what it might be similar to on some other format doesn't matter to me any more. We need to learn what to expect from our current equipment, not keep mapping it to the old. No one refers to their 50mm FF lens as "equivalent to 80mm on MF."
